Playful Promises Halloween Campaign

I haven't written in here for a while as I've been so busy! In the interim, I travelled to Chicago and New York, and have been assisting my partner on some video projects. More about those later!

If we have time, we always attempt to take a Halloween photoshoot at Playful Promises (last year's theme was Victorian Spiritualism), despite this being one of the busiest times of the year, leading up to Christmas. I wasn't quite sure what we could do that would be different to previous years (in 2013 we did a semi-B-movie style shoot and 2012 was cat inspired), and not be typically "spooky".

I started thinking of '70s horror films, in particular the strong colours of Suspiria and some of Lauren Thurman-King's amazing work.

Miss Deadly Red is one of my favourite people to shoot at the moment, and she was such a good sport about wearing smelly fangs, being covered in blood and having a fake eyeball shoved in her mouth.

Pick Of The Lingerie Sales

One of the most wonderful (well, depending on how you look at it, perhaps the word "tempting" is more apt) things about the post-Christmas period is SALES! 

There's some amazing lingerie sales on at the moment, and I've been incredibly tempted. I'm being very good and saving my money for a much-needed coat (from Collectif), but I can still share my wishlist!

Happy Halloween!

As part of my job is to create visual content, I put together a little Halloween themed shoot!

I got in touch with the lovely SINderella Rockafella, and borrowed some headgear from Pearls and Swine (I should really write a separate post about how awesome her work is!).

We decided to go for two different sets, one with the Tatiana lingerie and one with the Peacock lingerie (and we also did a Christmas set which I'll post later!).

The first set features an awesome spider headdress (stupidly I forgot that Emma, our brand director, is terrified of spiders!), so I thought I'd go for B-movie style puns :P



For the Peacock set, we had 3 different headdresses, and decided to shoot them all! We used the new wallpaper that's just been put up in the PP studio, which photographed beautifully (much like SINderella!).


Red and Gold

I really need to take more outfit shots for this blog!! I dress up at least once a week and never get around to actually taking a photo.

Here's a few shots I took on Saturday, featuring the red Elle Robe from Kiss Me Deadly.


I've also had a bit of a splurge.... but in my defense, the Nearer the Moon piece was bought a few weeks ago and the book was bought in sale!


I'll DEFINITELY take a better photo of this, but my Nearer The Moon fringe dress arrived! I got it in the gold and red colour way, and although it took me a while to figure out how it goes on (I'm really slow...), I'm in love. I'll be wearing it out this weekend, layered over other shiny things! 

I also grabbed the Opulence gold chain set from Playful Promises which arrived in the warehouse today. SO MUCH EXCITEMENT. I might actually end up embellishing this set, because I can never have enough gold.


A few months ago I bought a beautiful hard back, illustrated version of The Master and Margarita from The Folio Society and instantly fell in love. They are currently holding a summer sale, so I couldn't really help myself and ended up buying The Golem
